  THE HISTORY

  The Palace of Versailles was the official residence of the Kings of France from 1682 until 1790. It was originally a hunting lodge, but was expanded by Louis XIV beginning in 1669. The French classical architecture was complemented by extensive gardens. The palace was stripped of most of it's furnishings during the French Revolution, and Tuileries in Paris became the royal residence. Versailles is now a national museum.
